Stupeur et tremblements

Alain Corneau France, 2003

Eric Rucker's rating of the film Fear and Trembling

Sylvie Testud wins my vote for Most Likely To Be A Reincarnation Of Buster Keaton. What a funny and touching po-faced performance. She embodies the East-West split like a keystone cop doing the splits with each foot on a different moving car. On a bumpy road. Porkpie hats off. She made me cry laughing.
